Oscar Style File: BELFAST Star Catriona Balfe in Louis Vuitton

Posted on March 29, 2022

Miss Caitriona went the salt-and-pepper shaker route for her spin on the Oscars merry-go-round. Unfortunately, we didn’t like either of her style choices for the night. Let’s assess:

Our opinion hasn’t changed since our Cosmopolitan writeup. We are underwhelmed. We tend to think white gowns are a red carpet mistake in almost any instance, but if you’re going to show up at a formal event in white, it should at least be a rich-looking textile. This looks like it was made out of bed sheets – with a dust ruffle attached. We have no doubt that it’s all of the highest quality and that you can tell when you see it in person, but this photographs terribly. She’s pale and standing in front of a white wall. The effect is not dazzling. Love the necklace, hate the straps.

It’s fine. We’d like to say it feels stale, but the fact remains that ladystars still love their sheer dresses. We don’t think that makes the design come off any fresher, but we can’t claim she’s not on trend. The detail around the waist is kind of interesting, but we really don’t like the shape of the neckline.
